This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

honeybee on borage flower

honeybee on borage

Another good use for borage - it attracts honeybees! This is the first honeybee I've seen in my garden this year.

Beautiful photo. I usually have lots of volunteer borage but this year I only seem to have 1 plant. Better than nothing I guess!

Delightful photo. I planted borage for the first time this year and can't wait to see those stunning blue flowers in real time. So pretty.

Me too. Only one plant that I bought. But it has many flowers. I'm hoping for more plants next year.
